Show & Tell: “Passing Grounds” by RJ Lozada

On Thursday, May 13th at 6pm EST, join us for Show and Tell: Passing Grounds by R.J. Lozada. Passing Grounds is an exploration into the United States’ violent legacy through an understated and deeply somber look at sites not memorialized by a traditional body of historians, but rather, an individual seeking to share how deeply beautiful, and deeply disturbing, revisiting our contemporary historical location can be.

The film is the culmination of a 10-week road trip by filmmaker R.J. Lozada. In 2015, Lozada traveled to close to 30 locations across the country, mostly alone. Lozada visited the sites of death of people of color who lost their lives at the hands of law enforcement and the state. The work invites silence and meditative observation – a kind of mirror that reflects only what you see.

A live, remote Q&A with the artist, R.J. Lozada, will follow the screening, hosted by Vox Members Melissa Langer and Roopa Vasudevan. The film will be available to view on the Vox Website, along with the filmmaker Q+A, for one-month following the initial screening.

Show & Tell is presented by Vox Populi’s Black Box Committee as part of our ongoing 4th Wall film/video program dedicated to showcasing new and experimental film/video works by independent, emerging and early-career artists.
